Easy Vegan Breakfast Sandwich

Easy Vegan Breakfast Sandwich

This has become one of our all time favorite breakfasts. We’ve tried all kinds of egg replacers since removing eggs from our diet – some of them are excellent, but they can be expensive or hard to find. Happily, it turns out the simplest alternative

Ooey Gooey Cinnamon Buns With Cream Cheese Frosting (Vegan)

In our house, Christmas morning has always involved eating cinnamon buns while opening our stockings – there’s something about sticky fingers and wrapping paper (and shiny new gifts) that just works. 🙂  As a kid, my mom’s cinnamon rolls were dripping with golden, cinnamon-y syrup, 

Chickpea Tuna

One of the things I missed most after going vegan was canned tuna. It was such an easy thing to add to sandwiches, casseroles, and pasta – I would even eat it on its own on crackers or in salads. However, being at the top

Mushrooms are a vegan flavour-seeker’s best friend; their savoury earthiness is a godsend for those craving the comforting richness of stewed meats and broths, but not the meat itself. Even before I became a vegetarian, I was all about the mushrooms; a burger just wasn’t
